Dead Sea for Psoriasis

The many benefits of the Dead Sea for the treatment of psoriasis has been well known all over the world.  As a matter of fact, there are now facilities that specialize in psoriasis treatment at the Dead Sea.  The combination of the right climate, water salinity and location make it an ideal place for psoriasis treatment and recurrence prevention.

The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth at about 400 meters below sea level.  This makes it an ideal place for sunbathing minus the sunburn pains.  Being far below the sea level, the atmosphere has already filtered out much of the sunís harmful rays and it makes it possible for people to stay in this sunny region for an extended period of time.  For psoriasis treatment, many facilities offer large, private solariums that guests and patients can use.  They would usually recommend an extended exposure of about three to six hours per day with 30 minutes of limited bathing at a time (usually twice a day).

The Dead Sea is a very sunny region.  Humidity averages around 35% and the temperature is about 90 degrees.  Dead Sea psoriasis treatment facilities are usually closed only in the cloudy months of late December and January.  The rest of the year is ideal for psoriasis treatment.  

Moisturizers, heratolytics and other topical preparations are augmented to the Dead Sea psoriasis treatment.  For really extreme cases, medicines that have a more potent effect are combined with the treatment.  Patients are usually advised to get at least four to six weeks of treatment for maximum benefits and reduced psoriasis recurrence.  There are a few who have experienced great recovery in as short as two weeks.

Remission cases have varied over the years.  A study conducted by the International Journal of Dermatology on 100 psoriasis patients who have had Dead Sea treatments concluded that 75% achieved total healing from psoriasis after about four weeks of controlled treatment at the Dead Sea.  68% of them had remissions after about four months, 43% after half a year and 10% after about eight months.

A more recent similar study conducted by the Journal of the American Academy of dermatology concluded that of the 27 patients with extreme plaque psoriasis, 48% achieved total healing after about 12 to 15 weeks of treatment with daily bathing and sunbathing in the Dead Sea.
